Get me out of here.

2:21 AM

I just got back from Bintan last night. But I couldn't pull myself together to blog cause I was sea sick.
It's kinda weird because I wasn't suffering from it throughout the whole duration of my trip, but only a couple of hours after my arrival back at Singapore. So yeah I got seasick while on land. Which is well, weird. And I never once suffered from motion sickness or anything like that... I feel like a weakling to succumb to such an illness. It's nothing severe, but it feels a little like I'm suffering from vertigo.
My parents said it was probably because I travelled on boats a lot, and yeah I guess that's it cause throughout the past three days, I really boated around a couple of times. I hope this illness quickly tides over.

Anyway, the terrible things aside, I had the time of my life while I was at Bintan with my boy and his family! If you're wondering whether I fear the awkwardness, well duh. Who wouldn't when it comes to travelling with someone else's parents (and your boyfriend's at that).

But no fear was gonna stop me from travelling. Nu-uh. It was far too good an opportunity to give up. It turned out to be a blast, and I'm so thankful for how fearless and semi thick-skinned I am to have accepted the invitation. It was sooooo worth it. And I got to know his family better too.

Well, here's my 3D2N Bintan trip through my iPhone!

Panorama shots.

I brought my polaroid and superheadz camera too but I shall upload the other photos together some other time (maybe) once I've got the films processed.
I dipped into crystal clear waters, ate chili crab, went around Kampung houses on stilts and much much more for the very first time in the 17 years I have lived so far. That's a couple of things ticked off my bucket list! Not that I had an exhaustive list to begin with but, it's always been on the back of my mind.
But I so miss the food there because its spiciness is just damn shiok la and I need more of it. Undoubtedly, I ate a lot during this trip and didn't watch my diet at all so I've probably gotten fatter. Time to get back into shape again huh.

I can't wait to travel again during my next semester break in February. Hopefully, I'll get to go Japan this time because I've been dying to since 2 years ago and I still haven't got the chance to.

Travels aside, I just got a haircut today. I didn't get a new fancy style or anything, just chopped off a good three inches of my too-long hair and trimmed my fringe. I think I might have regretted my decision a little cause it feels a little too short now argh.

Damn hair can you pls pls pls grow like an inch longer by Christmas?
